Tokyo, Japan, took first place in the "Best Big Cities" category, determined by a poll of 600,000 readers.

Tourists love Tokyo because they can enjoy both city life and natural landscapes.

Visitors also love the delicious cuisine. Must-dos include shopping in Akihabara, visiting a cherry-blossom festival, seeing where the emperor lives at the Imperial Palace, and taking in the city's skyline from a colourful Ferris wheel.
